Why I am a practitioner with Healing Wave Aquatics:
It was my vision in 2010 to help reduce the then-veteran suicide rate of 22 per day as Founder of Healing Wave Aquatics. Having personally provided thousands of aquatic sessions over the past twenty years, I have seen first-hand the powerful immediate, and long-term therapeutic benefits, especially for individuals who suffer from trauma and post-traumatic stress.

I am a practitioner at Healing Wave Aquatics because I am committed to using aquatic therapy in service of breaking the cycles of trauma in my own personal history, as well as sharing what I’ve learned with anyone whom I have the honor to work, so that they too may forge a new path forward. I have seen firsthand the profound effects of untreated post-traumatic stress in Veterans in multiple generations of my family, and working for this organization has given me the opportunity to embrace the chance to give back to the veteran community of San Diego in the best way I know how. Showing people what the water has to offer them is one of my greatest joys, and I feel so blessed to be able to share it with as many people as possible.
